Wii Virtual Console Gets Arcade Games

The Wii's online Shop Channel will today be expanded to include classic arcade games, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata just announced at the Game Developers Conference.

Initial offerings will include Space Harrier, Mappy, The Tower of Druaga, Gaplus, Star Force, Solvalou, Emeraldia, and The Return of Ishtar.

Pricing varies from title to title. The Tower of Druaga, Starforce and Mappy are $5, while Gaplus is $6. All four are now available for purchase in the Wii Shop Channel.

      I have a friend who would probably buy a Wii just for Mappy.

      Where else, other than pirating or owning the arcade cabinet, can you play these games?

        I've seen some of those on those $10 probably-illegal "bunch of games in a joystick that you plug into your tv" devices.
